Finca Costa Rica is located in Santa María, Huila, Colombia and is owned and run by Faver Ninco and his family. The farm sits at 2,005 meters above sea level and consists of 10 hectares with approximately 19,900 coffee trees in total. There’s a few diverse varieties here, including: 5,000 Caturra, 8,000 Pink Bourbon, 2,200 Geisha, 3,000 Papayo and 1,700 Java. We have a separation of his Pink Bourbon.

Faver’s coffee career began roughly 25 years ago, gathering a foundation of everything he knows about coffee production from his dad and his coffee growing neighbours. Six years ago, he became very interested in coffee varieties and specialty coffee. His four adult children also participated, and now they’re all invested in the farm. Each of them owns their own coffee plants and carefully selects the varieties they want to grow to contribute to the family’s economy and their own.

Faver’s daughter, Liliam Camila, is the youngest member of The Coffee Quest team in Colombia, with whom we partnered with for this lot.
She oversees The Coffee Quest’s buying station in Santa María. She analyzes every coffee that is brought to the station and carefully cups each sample.

Approximately 3 people are employed year-round by Finca Costa Rica, and between 8 and 10 pickers are needed during the harvest. Banana trees, avocados, and vegetables are also grown on the farm for the family’s consumption. They have a forest reserve that is about 1.5 hectares in size, and they are very protective of the wild animals and water springs there.
